    Yes, I know. But 50k isn't the same as 150k. I don't think that's arguable. Very clever marketing. The Evoque is a runaway success because the 2 wheel drive 32k one looks so similar to the 150k Autobiography.

    Judging by the reaction on social media I'd say it's anything but clever marketing. I'm really not sure why you're mentioning '150k' as I've only ever been talking about this monstrous road hogging status symbol and its Brixton-based 'edgy' advertising campaign.

    Back to the playground with you, and well done for killing your own board.

    I'm sorry I've offended you, but I really don't understand why you're getting all worked up. This story has had loads of comments on social media, but your response has proved quite singular. Are you a fan of the car or something? Is that what's pissed you off?

    :confused:

    The police, apparently. They came to Market House the next day but the bar explained that they were completely closed up over an hour before the reported incident. No one seems to know anything. It definitely wasn't the Dogstar either. There's no 'pubs' open in Brixton at 4am.

    That is strange.

    It's not unheard of for pubs/clubs to find themselves unfairly associated with violence that takes place in their vicinity, regardless of whether they're open or closed. Maybe that's what happened here?

    people get stabbed outside closed places all the time. well, not all the time but it's surely hardly unknown for someone to be stabbed outside a closed business

    But the police said that the person was stabbed "after an altercation at a pub in Coldharbour Lane in Brixton." The point is that there was no pub open at 4am, unless they had an argument and then came back an hour and half later to have a fight. Or the fight was nowhere near a pub.

    or that there was a lock-in or other social event...

    The only places that could be described as 'pubs' on Coldharbour Lane were either completely closed at 4am or have reported no incidents.

    Hope it wasn't staff leaving the pub after cleaning up and being accosted by the knife man....

    No, it wasn't. I've spoken to Market House and the Dogstar and they're both mystified. Maybe someone got into a rumble in a pub hours before and then - rather belatedly - decided to carry on the dispute much later, away from the pub. That's the only explanation that makes sense.

    Doubt it. It's not a pub and I saw no police activity.

    Does anyone know if Khan's Restaurant on Brixton Water Lane is operating as normal these days?

    I have been trying to phone them for the past two days but can't get through, and when I click their website, it redirects to an online phrarmacy.

    Edit: Got through to them to make my booking. It's a great restaurant.

    One very helpful ‘rule’ for you. Means you don’t have to be accountable for anything.

    Ignore being a very dull and boring tool to avoid any questions about what you may not agree with.

    Also allows you to throw around insults like ‘deceitful shit’, which would, by your own rules, equate to personal insults (something which my posts haven’t included btw)

    Full on censorship.

    It's time to ban car advertising. Cars do more harm than fags.
